I’m a warrior. Cursed to fight monsters. Sworn to act as Zeus’ sword to protect mankind. But I’d give it all up for one last kiss with the god who stole my heart...Apollo. I never wanted to carry my family's legacy. But blood ties cannot be broken, and I’ll keep the promise I made my father on his dying bed. Legendary monsters hunt in city streets of Chicago, and my job was to take down the worst.

Good enough story line. Suspect I would enjoy it more if I read it. The female voice is super whiny. The male voices super testosterone filled and aggressive. Trying too hard to sound Godlike.

In Labor's Love Lost, noted sociologist Andrew Cherlin offers a new historical assessment of the rise and fall of working-class families in America, demonstrating how momentous social and economic transformations have contributed to the collapse of this once-stable social class and what this seismic cultural shift means for the nation's future.

I picked up this audio version of a book I needed to read for a Sociology class. I wish more of these books were out there. This was perfect to listen to going back and forth between classes and home. Also was able to re-listen to content as we discussed chapters in class. Loved it!

I got this young adult book for free and figured, "What the Heck"...It reminded me of all of the SciFi I read as a teen. But this story was amazing! Well written and well performed. I looked for other books to see if it was a series...no such luck. The way I know a book is good is if I am thinking about it days later. Well its been a month now and it keeps popping into my mind. "Well played Mr. Hirsch...well played!"
